Building a Basic .NET Framework Remoting Application

This topic is specific to a legacy technology that is retained for backward compatibility with existing applications and is not recommended for new development. Distributed applications should now be developed using the  Windows Communication Foundation (WCF).

Building an application that uses .NET Framework remoting to communicate across application domain boundaries is very straightforward. You must have an implementation of a remotable type, a listening or host application domain, a client or calling application domain, and you must configure the remoting system in each application domain to use remote activation for the remotable type. This process applies no matter how complex your remoting scenario becomes.
